This entryway went from ordinary painted walls to a
stunning masterpiece with an Old World feel!
The hand of God reaching out to Adam’s – (from Michelangelo’s ‘Creation of Adam’) is the centerpiece of the stairway wall. Surrounding it is a faux weathered Venetian style plaster. It was troweled on a bit more heavily than usual so we could see the depth of the plaster.
A few days and many processes and applications later the area is no longer a generic entryway! The results were quite spectacular – extending around the corners, up over a doorway, then down the other side – framing out the entrance into the living area. Unfortunately these photos do not show the depth of character and actual texture of the plaster. The overall appearance here is muted.
This room is definitely something that needs to be seen and experienced in person.

***Here is some of the finished area, but see below for more of the process***
First, center, and prepare wall area for the mural.
Beginning to apply first layer of the ‘plaster’
Above: One of several applications of paint, glaze or sealer.
Below: Notice that I applied the faux material to the wall plug cover, painting it to match the wall.
If you look closely you will see the blue undertones that show through slightly around the outside of the mural area. I also added some cracks in the plaster in various places. These are sculpted into the plaster and painted.
More photos to come ~ In the meantime
